It is a great pleasure to invite you to the second edition of the Special Issue: Applied Catalysis in Chemical Industry: Synthesis, Catalyst Design, and Evaluation. The significant economic and strategic importance of catalysis makes it a rapidly evolving field. In the face of the present day’s significant challenges, it is essential to acquire fundamental knowledge about the structures and phenomena of the surfaces of catalysts as well as the relationships between the composition, synthesis method, properties, and performance of catalysts in industrial processes. Research is still needed to improve existing catalysts or design new systems which may efficiently and selectively conduct a given reaction toward the desired product.
This Special Issue is devoted to the design and characterization of heterogeneous catalytic systems for industrial chemical processes. The aim is to collect papers presenting the current state of knowledge, indicating areas requiring further research, and showing the direction of ongoing development work. Contributions in the form of original research articles, short communications, perspective articles, and review articles reflecting the progress in the proposed topics are welcome. The main focus will be on comprehensive experimental studies of synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of catalyst performance in industrial processes. The proposed topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- methane conversion;
- water–gas shift reaction;
- ammonia synthesis;
- ammonia decomposition;
- ammonia oxidation;
- carbon oxides methanation;
- selective catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides;
- N2O decomposition;
- hydrogen production processes.
The scope also includes an investigation of catalysts under conditions close to the industrial ones, a comparison of the studied catalytic systems with the currently operating commercial systems, and a demonstration of the validity of their application in a given chemical process.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
